Rick Sutcliffe Card

May 6, 2015

Rick Sutcliffe still likes the Orioles to win the American League East, appreciates Buck Showalter's ability to mix and match, considers Adam Jones one of baseball's best all-around players, doesn't want to see the designated hitter in the National League, and is a big fan of Interleague play.

In the opposing dugout, he likens Mets center fielder Juan Lagares to Andruw Jones, and he doesn't think the Mets' success should be a surprise to anyone.
